Balasubramanian P January 08, 2015  

Don't go by his CV. There are so many with rather better Biodata than him. U refer to A Raja's or Chidambaram's Bio data that's also good. He has to mend his way of working if he wants to be fruitful. He's confused man. Haven't heard him doing anything great as an Income Tax Comm.

brajabasi February 14, 2015  

I hope he has learnt from his past failures that to succeed in politics ,you have to play according to the rules of politics.

Ruban Dass February 14, 2015

Mohammadasteen July 13, 2016  

Confused guy-does not know what he wants. Did Engg and went into Civil Services and then into Politics which really does not need the qualification he has because of late he has been behaving like the rest of the uneducated politicians.
